Wrap-up: November

November was a less busy month on the blog, after the hecticness that was October (and is going to be December too…), but we still posted a fair bit, and, on a whim, started our own LGBT lit choice awards (which may or may not continue next year).

And I (Charlotte) for once watched more things than Anna did (please note this down because it’ll never happen again).

So, here’s our wrapup! As ever, the fire emoji indicates a reread/rewatch.
